Track Name: One At A Time
System breaks down
Stupidity prevails amongst the clowns
Obligation felt
The sanctity of serving oneself
Take our lives, one at a time
Rob us blind, one at a time
Disregard, one at a time
Take apart, take apart
The fake comforting
Dressed up nice to alleviate the sting
Ostracize, lose all ties
Our lives, one at a time
Rob us blind, one at a time
Disregard, one at a time
Take apart, take apart
Track Name: Quid Pro Quo
Stop!
Interests collide, fake compromise
Back room awaits, these common traits
While the system fails us all
We will give up our capital
Quid Pro Quo, we won't stand for these lies
What we know, we won't take it in stride
What we own, we won't have blinded eyes
What we owe
And we forget our convictions
Ideals serve as restrictions
We set the path to injustice
Elements that help to enrich us
Taken for fools, taken for fools
Taken for fools, taken for fools
Track Name: Things We Tell Ourselves
The things we tell ourselves
To maintain sanity
Stop lights from going dim
Stay focused on the spin

What do we believe
What should we believe

Truth became obsolete
This fiction carries weight
The gratification
Too easy to sedate
Track Name: Insufficiency
We will forgive, all the layers of feelings that will not allow us to live
Abandoned drone, we continue to hover way above the earth all alone
When we were let down, from our safest ground, these chaotic seas, will hide our insufficiency
Twisted words soon taken back, the exclusion remains intact, to comprehend the clutter in our minds, we search but we won't find, we search but we won't
When hope is for sale, exquisite betrayal, of complexity, creates our insufficiency
It's all we have
Track Name: Lackey
Would we provide these resources, and question not
Surrender the curiosity, there is no need for thoughts
Any honest man admits, the reason why
Self subjugation at its worst, the watchful eye

The autonomy and provisions, they act as one
Service provides us with distinction, but no regard
Trusted lackey will be there, to clean it up
There's no failure no reward to get it done
Track Name: Vile
The denial, gives us reason to keep this door shut
Will embrace this, celebration of our own control
Stay prepared to take notes, study from afar
We'll find a way to show you just how great we really are
Perspective is key, for a happy life
We'll make you see, make you see through one good eye
Far removed, reality takes us further from the truth
Disconnect, all discomfort from our own consciousness
Stay prepared to take notes, study from afar
We'll find a way to show you just how great we really are
Perspective is key, for a happy life
We'll make you see, make you see through one good eye
Its vile!
Track Name: Constellations
Investigation of what we once lived for
Have retreated to the sky
Has contained all the hope and the meaning
Could this really die
Impotence of a slow retreat
Can we ever stop this
When did we all figure out that life
Was a simple function based on time
Molecular significance a lie
We stared at constellations to ask why
Since our existence provides speculation
Of what unfolds
And we will take what the fuck we are given
And buy what we're sold
We went forward with these regrets
We're never set, we're never set
When did we all figure out that life
Was a simple function based on time
Molecular significance a lie
We stared at constellations to ask why
We're never set, we're never set
Track Name: Satiate
What will it take, what will it take
All that is left, all that is left
Simple to understand, what we have in hand
When nothing dominates, sad attempts to satiate
Ourselves!
Track Name: Sidelines
We've established the line
What it means to decline
The remarkable fate
That we stipulate
Should we stand on sidelines, should we stand on sidelines
Should we stand on sidelines, it takes us down, it takes us down
Its twisted just right
With ease we recite
Inconsistencies
Through the centuries
